The Arc is long: Salford Pride
As part of LGBT+ History Month, Salford Pride are running a four part project. The aim of this project is to celebrate the history of our community and educate people on the wider LGBT+ community and identities, through the sharing of local people's stories and different generational experiences of what is was like being an LGBT+ person during different decades in history - from the early sixties right up until modern day; to reflect on the progress we have made but how far there is yet to go. Following along with the theme “the arc is long”.
This history & icons project looks to recruit LGBT+ people from across the six generations of queer history and Salford Pride will host an inter-generational discussion and interview; which will be made into a four part series of video interviews/short features.
Filming will take place between 20th Jan - 24th Jan 2022.
The project will run online from 1st February until February 28th online campaign, sharing videos of different generations answering questions about LGBT+ lives throughout history. We are looking for people who are happy to be part of this video campaign that will be spotlight across our social media channels.
We are looking to represent a holistic representation of the whole community, showcasing individual experiences, stories, marches and protests, art or performance. We want every part of the LGBT+ community to share themselves in this project, so we are particularly interested in reaching historically underrepresented groups; those from communities experiencing racism, people with disabilities, trans. nonbinary and gender diverse people, and a range of ages from across the past six decades of LGBT+ history.
If you would like to be involved, or if you know someone that you think would be great to feature, please contact us as soon as possible, but no later than Tuesday 25th January 2021.
